for our city t is a problem for the republican party. in this last election they lost the blacks. they lost the women, they lost young voters. they lost latinos by 44%. even more surprising they failed it to get 100% of the white male vote. but there might be a way to turn the voter tide in the gop's favor and it brings us to tonight's word. (cheers and applause) base instinct. now, folk, the climbing street violence may seem like a positive development to some. but as "the washington post" charles lane recently wrote fear of street crime once converted many a white working class democrat into a republican. but safer streets have now blunted what was once a sharp wedge issue. and folks, without crime the gop's only remaining wedge issues are gay marriage, immigration, flag burning, voter fraud, welfare, gun control and of course contraception. now in the good old-- (laughter) in the good old bad days of the '80s republicans could turn out the suburban white vote simply by showing images of scary guys like willie horton being allowed to go in and out of prison. to this day i'm ter
the election, pollsters don't have jack squat to do. that's why i admire the folks over the democratic-leaning public policy poll who despite having nothing to ask were still willing to ask it in a really divisive way. in their first postelection national poll published yesterday, they found that 49% of g.o.p. voters nationally say they think acorn stole the election for president obama. that is truly shocking. especially since acorn doesn't exist any more. it folded two years ago. now,ppp thinks they made the republicans look like conspiracy nuts, but i say this just proves the conspiracy goes deep, so deep it doesn't even exist ( laughter ) and you know what else doesn't exist? acorn. ( applause ) and whenppp asked about possible solutions to the looming fiscal cliff, they found 39% had a strong opinion about the simpson-bowles budget plan and 25% of respondents had a strong opinion on the panetta-burns plan. fun fact-- the panetta burns plan does not exist, either. but i say it disappoint mean it's not the plan. because i think we know the solution to the fiscal cliff that both repu

: white house, people think tapper. what other stories, now that the election is over, where has the news moved to right now because i did about two minutes on the fact that they are not charging their cell phones on homeland tonight. >> that was a good point, good point. >> stephen: well, thank you. the peabody people are watching i'm ready to submit. what's everybody talking about? >> the fiscal cliff. >> stephen: fiscal cliff, yeah. >> trillions of dollars of spending cuts and tax increases that are going to happen when the ball drops on new year's eve unless president obama and congress come to some sort of compromise. >> stephen: all right so, we're all doomed. >> it's like the movie thaw you have to either cut off your arm or die. so they will come-- they will cut off their arm. >> stephen: do you know, do you know what kind of ratings the news could get if they could get politicians to cut off their arms on camera? okay. -- (cheers and applause) >> stephen: as i said senior white house correspondent for abc news. the only news anybody watches any more. >> i think that's true. >> st
. nation, i have been saying far month now that once the presidential election is over i hope we'll finally see bipartisan compromise in washington. and i siner is vie mean that i said it. (laughter) sadly, the power-mad democrats decided that just because people voted for them, they're in power. and they're already trampling our freedoms. >> reporter: democrats are proving yet again they will do anything to push through their liberal agenda. now they have gone a step too far. senate democrats with harry reid leading the charge want to drastically change the filibuster in order to limit the republicans' ability to oppose certain legislation. >> stephen: yes, harry reid is trying to stop republicans from blocking certain legislation. for instance, any legislation. he's chipping away at the sacred senatorial institution known as the filibuster which allows the minority party to prevent a bill from coming to a vote simply by speaking non-stop on the senate floor. for instance, by reading the phone book. that's how, in 1974, the d.c. metro area yellow pages were signed into law.
